Like the proverbial phoenix rising from the ashes, so goes the story of Buried at Birth… Formed in the Spring of 2010 by Ryan Fassler and David Taylor, the duo intended to fill the void left by bands like Fall Silent, Insect Warfare, 97a, and the Accused. After a few jam sessions however, the pair quickly realized that they’d need another guitar to complement their brand of spastic, yet complex Thrash / Grind. Enter Nathan Luevano – a young, uncompromising Metal thrasher from Santa Cruz, Ca. with a crisp and dense guitar tone. With a solid foundation now in place, Veronica Mars and Donovan Kelley joined shortly thereafter on vocals and bass – respectively. This line-up would see them through the first few months of their existence. Upon agreement of the moniker, Buried at Birth, the band promptly recorded a 3-song demo with Scott Goodrich at Imperial Recording in Livermore, Ca. They also began an intensive booking process that locked in performances throughout California at skateparks, basements, VFW halls, and any other venues that would have them. After a string of successful shows in Northern California, time was booked with Joe Clements at the Compound in Santa Cruz, Ca. and 5 sonically devastating songs were expertly tracked for their self titled debut release. Unfortunately, due to personal obligations, Nathan resigned around this time – but was replaced by a local San Jose shredder named Jerry Lozano. Late in the Spring of 2011, Dave also left the band as a result of their rigorous touring schedule; but was replaced by Philip Hasha as the new guitarist.With the e.p. expected to hit stores in June of 2011, Buried at Birth has been performing fervently in preparation of its release. As veteran musicians of bands such as Agression, At Risk, Manson Family Feud, and Tried & True, their live shows are bursting with unbridled intensity and such calculated chaos that even the most jaded observer can’t help but be affected.
Also watch for unreleased Buried at Birth material to be included on a handful of compilations by labels such as BuriedinHell (Sacramento), Birds Out Records (Scotland), and Maximum Thrash (Indonesia).
